News: Rays pitchers Alex Colome (illness), Jake McGee (elbow surgery) and Matt Moore (Tommy John surgery) were each able to throw bullpen sessions Tuesday as a part of their rehab, reports the Tampa Bay Times.

"(Colome) looks like he feels really good," manager Kevin Cash said. "It's exciting to see."

The trio has yet to see any action this spring as they recover from elbow injuries.


Jose Alvarez
Jose Alvarez ready to be Angels' long reliever

News: Angels pitcher Jose Alvarez transitioned from starting to the bullpen, this spring, and it looks like he's landed a job as the team's long man out of the bullpen. 

"It's a little different, but have to do it," Alvarez said per MLB.com. "We're looking for a spot no matter what position, starter or reliever."

Alvarez has a 2.16 ERA this spring. 

"We're definitely impressed with his stuff," manager Mike Scioscia said. "His velocity is better, his slider is tighter. He looks much better than he did last year. ... He has enough stuff to start. But his stuff definitely plays in a bullpen, both as a lefty specialist, but also a guy who can give you some length because he has really good stuff against right-handers also."


Andrew Bailey
Yankees' Andrew Bailey must pitch back-to-back days to make roster

News: Yankees pitcher Andrew Bailey is still working his way back from offseason shoulder surgery. Bailey has pitched four innings this spring without giving up an earned run and just three hits.

But for Bailey to make the Opening Day roster, manager Joe Girardi wants to see Bailey pitch on back-to-back days, reports The Journal News.

"I don't see how you could do that," Girardi said. "And the one thing is, we're not going to rush him. I think it comes down to who we think is going to help us the most is the bottom line. I don't think you necessarily in your mind say (for example) I have to have a third lefty. Is it a luxury, sure it is, but I think it's who we think is going to help us the most."

Street, who is hoping to finish a contract extension before the start of the season next week, pushed his ERA to 8.10 in seven appearances this spring.

News: Yankees pitcher Adam Warren is still hoping for a shot at the starting rotation this season. He didn't help his case Tuesday, allowing five runs on nine hits in four innings of work against minor league hitters. 

"The results weren't the best, but I'm just trying to get ready for the season," Warren said to ESPN.com. "It's tough out here to get the adrenaline going, so you try to lock it in, work on some things. That’s really what I try to focus on, getting ready for the season."

Warren is still having difficulty with the transition from reliever to starter.

"Sometimes you feel like you let off the pedal a little bit because you're like, you've got to go multiple innings, and sometimes you catch yourself pulling off a little bit," Warren said. "But I feel like I'm better if I'm bringing everything I’ve got for as long as I can. So I’ve got to constantly remind myself to go out there with a bullpen mentality, just as a starter."

Flynn had a 1.50 ERA in nine games this spring, and manager Ned Yost said he was one of the best pitchers in camp. However, the Royals would risk losing either Ryan Madson or Louis Coleman if they sent either of those pitchers down. Flynn still has options available.

News: White Sox reliever Jesse Crain has resumed throwing after suffering a minor setback in mid-March due to shoulder soreness, per MLB.com.

"But I'm moving forward again," said Crain, who played long toss from 120 feet Monday. "Obviously, when you first come in, you feel like there's a chance, as I was doing so well. ... I don't want to rush it, and [I want to] make sure I'm there and there for good when it happens.

"I've felt better than I have since I've been going through this. So, that's a positive sign. I'm going to stay down here and keep working and be with the staff down here, and we'll put a good plan together to make that happen."
